Tulipani: Love, Honor, and a Bicycle
Mike van Diem - Netherlands, Italy, Canada (2017) - 90 mins

After losing his farm in the 1953 floods, Dutchman Gauke sets out on his bicycle with a basketful of tulip bulbs and lands in a small town named Puglia, where he puts down roots. His newfound Italian paradise, complete when the love of his life arrives with baby in tow, is spoiled by local racketeers who threaten the harmony of the tight-knit community. Academy Award-winner Mike van Diem (Character) gives us this fantastical, larger-than-life tale of adventure and romance, cruelty and heartbreak. Bursting with color and romance and teeming with charming performances (including one from Oscar nominee Giancarlo Giannini as an exceedingly patient detective)
